Yes you can. The belt goes between the front and rear sets of arms on the booster seat. It is always advised to use a shoulder strap with it but you need a clip to bring the direction of the top of the shoulder strap [seat belt] to avoid neck (throat) impact. If this is not possible at the moment then run the shoulder strap behind the child and the lap belt portion over their lap, between the two sets of arms, as they sit in the seat. Then get a seat belt locking clip soon. You can get them anywhere on the net and at your local department stores as well for $7 or so.

FOR LARGER KIDS: If the child is over 35lbs, use the belt and shoulder harness as you would an adult and simply extend the belt over the seat. You do not need to install any of the built in straps.
SMALLER CHILDREN (UNDER 35 lbs): 1) If your child is under 35lbs get the locking clip that came with the seat if you have a seat with a shoulder harness attached. Otherwise, it isn't necessary. Pull the shoulder harness down to the base of the waste strap and then use the locking clip to bind it into place.
2) For a smaller child you will need to install the built in straps like so.
3. Set the seat in place running the waist strap through the back of the seat and clipping it on the other side.

Stores had recalled a Remi 2 Travel Basic Car Seat as a precautionary measure.There is a risk that the car seat may not provide the required restraint if the seat straps can be removed and then rethreaded. However this seat should strap in with the lap strap.
you take the seat belt and put the lap strap thru the back of the carseat and click in in on the oher side pull tight and carseat is secure. the shoulder strap part doesnt effect the safety of the car seat at all
Basically, locate the ends of the straps on either side of the seat. You can remove the plastic end thingy and take the strap out. Then re-thread the strap. Remember to thread it through the thin grey strap (which adjusts the tension of the main shoulder straps) as well as the little metal guide at the back of the chair.
Your problem may also be that the length-adjuster (thinner grey strap) is too tight. You can loosen it by pressing on the button located just in front of the main buckle and pulling on the shoulder straps. This is also how you tighten the shoulder straps - by pulling on the thinner grey strap.
Generally, the shoulder straps should come out around the childs shoulder level. Higher is ok. Lower is bad because it doesn't secure him in.
I have the same problem with mine. It's an easy fix. Unlock the straps (pull the little gray release tab) and then pull firmly upward on the lap belt opposite the loose strap. To reword: If your left shoulder strap is the loose one, go the right side of the seat, where the LAP belt comes out of the seat, and pull firmly upward on that part of the belt. It will pull the slack out from the other side. I hope that was helpful.
